The new Dynaudio Contour i Series – updated from the multi-award-winning 2016 Contour range – has officially launched!
Audiophiles everywhere have come to expect nothing less than top quality, high-performance products from Dynaudio. As one would expect, the whole Contour i range was extensively optimised in Dynaudio’s world-leading Jupiter measuring facility before being subjected to countless hours of listening and fine-tuning by the experts in Dynaudio Labs before release.
World-famous for crafting high-end loudspeakers for living rooms and professional recording studios, Dynaudio’s updates to their latest series include a new Esotar tweeter with the ingenious Hexis resonance defeating inner dome, plus a new larger rear chamber combined to reduce distortion and give a flatter frequency response.
The Contour family has been subject to a total revamp! If you thought Dynaudio couldn’t top their Confidence range, think again, because the talented team have managed to take audio technology to new heights once more with advanced acoustic technology and materials – and the results are plain to hear!
Never a brand to shy away from new technologies, materials and innovations, as Product Manager Otto Jørgensen says;
“We didn’t do it because we had to, we did it because we wanted to.”
So, what’s new?
Although the Contour 20i, 30i and 25Ci all have the same structural design as the 2016 Contour, with varying-width corrugations for finer excursion control, the new material sounds better. This is the result of hours of listening!
The Contour 20i, 30i and 25Ci have updated crossovers and the woofers all gain an upgraded Nomex spider. In fact, because of the driver tweaks providing an inherently flat frequency response, Dynaudio has been able to remove the impedance correction circuitry to make an even simpler board.
For a tighter bass, even at high volume, the Contour 60i has new woofers with a bigger magnet system, a different voice-coil design and a glass-fibre voice-coil. There’s no change to the driver itself, but it does sit in a new moulded, resonance-damping enclosure developed from Core, Dynaudio’s flagship professional reference monitor range.
Contour 60i has an entirely new crossover because of the new woofers and Esotar 2i tweeter, and the effect of the moulded midrange cup and the Nomex spiders has allowed Dynaudio’s engineers to shift the crossover frequency up. It now works better at higher frequencies – up to around 300Hz. The frequency curve in this area is also flatter, giving better midrange performance from a more straightforward crossover. Lessons have been learned from the earlier Evoke and Confidence series as even the internal damping is brand-new.
Once again, Dynaudio has excelled with their new additions as audiophiles around the world have come to expect!
